    Seems that a lot of folks on both sides of the issue have a lot of concerns about healthcare reform.

    - Reforms aren't reforming enough
    - Reforms are too radical
    - Growing the size and scope of government
    - Democrats having too much say
    - Public option bad for private industry
    - No public option bad for healthcare consumer
    - Compulsory insurance too liberty infringing
    - Compulsory insurance needed if it's going to work at all to solve the problem

    What would you say are YOUR biggest concerns and more importantly, how would you rank them in order of priority?

    Poll to possibly follow.

    My top concerns for healthcare reform:

    An affordable option for the working poor
    Getting primary care out of the emergency room

    Constitutionality.

    Too bad Ms. Pelosi doesn't see that as a "serious" issue.

    The thought of compulsory insurance bothers me. Instead of promoting a healthier society by choice our system seems to keep poisoning the masses, tax the masses into oblivion and then it gives the tax collections to the companies that are poisoning the masses.

    For instance:
    Flouride added to our nation's water systems come from the super-phosphate fertilizer industry and contains lead, arsenic and radium, all of which are known to cause cancer. Water Departments buy tons of substance annually that can't be given away because it is classified as a toxic hazardous waste. Cities are charged 35 cents per gallon when they slap a new label on the container, this same toxic waste can be shipped untreated, directly from the phosphate fertilizer industry. With a new label it is converted to a safe and desirable nutrient.that is actually poison. Someone neglected to tell the masses that flouride is actually a toxic substance that has been sold to them by compulsory regulations throughout the nation on a false claim it is good for your children and will improve their teeth.

    Poisoned Waters

    Also in the quest to grow more grow bigger grow more profitable corporate farming and genetically modified food is killing natural immunities. The poisoning of the nation began years ago. We have a friend whose entire family from grandparents to sister have had cancer. The whole area where they lived had an extremely high rate of cancer. Studies showed the common cause was from excessive fertilizers (nitrates) in the water supply.

    Grow big better and more for corporate nation killers and tax the people for the excessive health care cost after you have poisoned them.

    That the government has no business being in the business of wealth redistribution and handing out even more 'welfare' to non-contributors at the expense of contributors.... essentially.. the government getting into more of a practice of selective equal treatment

    Can you provide evidence where anything is Unconstitutional?

    Just because you don't like it, or Fox News says so, doesn't make it unconstitutional
